A caudiciform plant (caudex) of a very slow growth. Its caudex, of a globular shape, is wrapped in layers of fleshy leaves which, when wilting, make it look like an onion, hence the nickname “Onion Cactus”. At the apex it generates a tangle of long and thin stems, almost completely devoid of leaves, from which, in spring, small green star-shaped flowers bloom.

Plant care:

It requires a lot of light all year round, still avoid direct sun rays.

It is preferable to keep it at mild temperatures and never below 13 °C, for this reason it is recommended to shelter it during the winter period.

Water regularly but moderately during the growing season, always making sure that the soil is always dry between one watering and the next one. During the vegetative rest period, suspend watering.

A well-draining and porous soil is an optimal solution, even better if further enriched with 50% of inert materials such as pumice, lapilli, clay.

They do not need frequent fertilization, it is sufficient to dilute the fertilizer with watering once a year.
